resolution!

After reading the comments, deleting things that didn't need to be said, and talking with a couple of other folks, I've come to a determination here.

This blog is going to be about ME.

If I talk about my wife, it's only going to be in reference to ME.

If I say something, it's from MY perspective.

There's not going to be anything regarding objectivity here.

I will write how I see things, and from my viewpoint.

However, with this in mind, I'm going to be limiting what I say and talk about regarding my wife and family.

This may mean that I'll be blogging about the weather, or some ant crawling across the floor of my office because nearly 9-10ths of my blog have been centered around me and my relationship.

No More.

After reading Bee's comment, I realized that she was right.

I'm hurting my spouse by saying these things, even if I believe in what I'm writing.

Because of this, I need to start editing my writing, and thinking through what it is I'm trying to say.

Yes, even an asshole can learn to be Politically Correct, and I'm going to take that crash-course starter class.

So, as of today, my posts regarding myself and my family are going to be coming off the board.

I don't know if I'm going to delete them, or just restrict access, but they'll be taken off.

I need to learn to think first and foremost about my family, even to the detriment of myself, or things that I enjoy.

Thank you all for your comments, and I hope you keep reading.

Good for you! Hubman and I actually have a rule that we do not blog anything negative about the other besides a mild ribbing here and there.

It really works for us.

You can put them in DRAFT mode to remove them without deleting.

All I will say is that I do hope this was a mutual agreement, and not a mandate.

Or at least if you write about wife and family on the blog, let them know about it beforehand, if you think it would be too sensitive to them.

On my blog, I include a little about wife and family sometimes, but almost always in a humorous way. It can be a fine line, though.

All this said, I think what you're doing, though, is praiseworthy, especially from your wife, and that's really matter, no matter what we readers think. :)
